8211: Re: 8203: Slavin: Honoring David X. Young (fwd)

From: MKarshan@aol.com

Dear Patrick:  Thank you for reminding me that Georgette's name was Georgette!  I don't know why I wrote Jeanette!  Anyway, being reminded of that screenplay David wrote about the King of LaGonave brings back memories -- bad memories.  Remember how annoyed David was that Jonathan Demme didn't take him up on that screenplay.  

I guess this could open up a whole discussion about worthy work on Haiti being ignored.  Poor David.  He felt so humiliated that his work didn't interest those with the capabilities to get them exposure.  Thank goodness that jazz track came out while he was alive.  I'm sure he loved it.
